Steel Battalion by ModalMechanica Steel Battalion by ModalMechanica
I never played the game, but after seeing a little bit of it, I immediately fell in love with the designs.

Paint practice, Its been awhile since i've posted I know, but I'm still feeling pretty lazy lol.

Steel Battalion is fun, but unnecessarily complicated. Your guns and view are not linked, which is done to allow you to look around while strafing around a target, but mostly it just serves to make it really annoying to shoot things you can't get a lock-on on. Your VT also has a Manual Transmission, for some reason, and lacks stabilizers to allow it to turn while running without falling over. Early model VTs also fill your screen with more screens, gauges, dials, and readouts than you can actually see out the front, unless you have a gigantic TV you'll barely be able to see anything.

The mechs, however, ARE pretty sweet.

haha i played a demo once at some sort of event, i was the only person who was able to get it walking, but that was as far as i got haha. But yeah it seemed over complicated, but mainly, the designs were just awesome. So its all good haha

Just saying, pretty sure that mechs in SB average 10-20 stories. This only looks 3-4.

oh, well the bottom of the screen isnt the ground, your not actually seeing the whole thing. But I definitly dont know the scale to these things, so you may be right anyway
